  • Specialty Pipes for Aquaculture/Fish Farming Industry

    Eliminating static electricity in transportation pipes - Case Study: Fish Feeding pipes for salmon cage farming.

    Elastochem's specialty supplier Premix has worked together with Norwegian pipe manufacturer Arges AS and created a new pipe construction for fish food feeding pipe systems. This new innovation will prevent the build-up of static electricity - the issue which causes problems and risks in the traditional feeding systems. Our electrically conductive PRE-ELEC® HD-compound plays key role in the construction: it will discharge the electric charges created from feed pellet transportation into sea water. Arges' just received a Norwegian patent for this solution.

    But the problems with static electricity are not limited in only fish farming. The same problems are real also in the other industry sectors (e.g. animal nutrition industry) where the pellets or dusts are transported in plastic pipe systems.

    Let us know if you have applications in these environments.
